3rd CRAICC – PEEX Workshop:


Climate Change for Arctic Seas and Shipping

The 3rd CRAICC - PEEX workshop will be held 24-25 August 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark

The topics of the workshop are:

  • estimating consequences of climate change for the Arctic region on seas and shipping and effects of ship emissions on the environment and climate
  • estimating frequency, spatio-temporal distribution and impact of extreme weather events on shipping traffic
  • improving satellite monitoring and modelling of ice formation and movement in areas of the Arctic shipping routes
  • developing approaches to environmental challenges due to possible increase in Arctic shipping

We invite all doing research in fields related to these topics to deliver a presentation at the workshop.

Key-note speakers:

  • Elizaveta Zabolotskikh, Satellite Oceanography Laboratory, Russian State Hydrometeorological University: Satellite microwave observations and investigations of Polar Lows in the Arctic.
  • Jinping Zhao, Physical Oceanography Laboratory, Ocean University of China: Extremely low sea ice concentration in the central Arctic during the summer of 2010.
